Used these on a recent 5-day open-to-close binge. Saw a range of conditions, from blue-bird and warm to dumping and pretty cold. Hands were always comfortable and dry, even on the coldest days (20F/-6C). Felt great on the warmest days (45F/7C). Didn't even really have to think about my hands, which is what you want right?? I love the look of these things and I’m happy to throw some coin to a company like Yuki. Shipping was quick, no hassles. And the stickers were much appreciated!
Some things I’ve noticed: Measured my hand and settled on a size medium. Maybe I should’ve bought a size up because it was tough getting my hands in and out of these things. So maybe get a size bigger than you think. Over the course of the 5 days, the mitts seemed to break in a bit and it became easier to get into. A couple little holes developed at the base of the cuffs, probably from tugging at them so much trying pulling them over my hands. Some minor wear on the leather on the tips of the fingers/thumbs and palms, but nothing unexpected. Some pilling/wearing in the liner on the pads of my thumbs. Other than that, still fresh.
Overall, I'm stoked on these and planning on using them for a long time. Great job Yuki.
